Weekly Running Log Update (16 May 2011 ~ 22 May 2011)

Did kettlebell and yoga for core fitness training on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.  I ran on Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday for a total of 36 miles.  Saturday was a rest day, but did 50 minutes of yoga.

The upcoming week will be a light week since I’m planning to run a 5K race on Friday.  I’ll do my kettlebell and yoga routine on Monday, Wednesday and Saturday.  On Tuesday I’ll do 6 x 400 intervals and rest on Thursday (with a little restorative yoga).  In lieu of a tempo run, I plan to run a 5K this Friday, and if the conditions are good, hopefully run around an 18:30.  I’ll do a moderate long run on Sunday, maybe 10 to 12 miles since I have a half marathon scheduled the following Sunday (June 5th).

Training Results this Week:

Monday – Kettlebell (26 minutes), Yoga (20 minutes)

Tuesday – Intervals (Treadmill, 2% incline), 7 x 800s with 90 second rest between intervals.  1.5 mile warm-up, 1.25 mile cooldown.  Ran intervals in 2:51 per interval (5:42/mile pace).

Wednesday – Kettlebell (26 minutes), Yoga (20 minutes)

Thursday – Tempo, 1 mile warm-up, 8.5 miles tempo (6:35 minute pace), 1 mile cooldown.  Felt pretty strong on this run.

Friday – Kettlebell (26 minutes), Yoga (20 minutes)

Saturday – Yoga (50 minutes)

Sunday – Long Run around the Yokohama (~ 19 miles, average 7:39 pace).  Bit of a struggle this week.


About runninginspired

I’m in my mid-40s and have been running for about 19 years. I have finished 24 marathons with a personal best time of 3:04. I currently reside in San Diego, CA. I enjoy running since it keeps you honest and will give back what you put into it. Work hard, but smart, and good results will eventually follow. I like to experiment with training plans, gadgets, shoes, and nutrition to find what works for me. The primary purpose of this blog is to document my training and thoughts about running in my ongoing quest to improve my fitness and health.
